About Us

The Indypendent Reader is a local media source that aims to inform and be a resource for social justice movements in Baltimore and beyond. The project began in 2006 as a collaboration between the Baltimore Independent Media Center and Campbaltimore Project, and now operates as an autonomous collective. We encourage people to “become the media” by providing space for both new and experienced writers to publish their stories, analysis, and multimedia work. We seek to bring to light Baltimore's rich tradition of social and political activism.

The project publishes both a print paper, as well as a more frequently updated news and multimedia website, indyreader.org. The goal is to create a collaborative project in which concerned individuals and those dedicated to social justice can use the media to speak for themselves, organize, and build liberatory movements. We aim to inform, educate, and facilitate participation in movements and struggles.

We are funded through donations from our readers and local businesses that advertise in the paper itself.
